MOOC, 8 tipologies | ladislau girona Recentment he llegit un article al blog de Donald Clark parlant dels MOOCS i les seves diferents tipologies des d’una perspectiva pedagògica, des del punt de vista dels instruments d’aprenentatge que incorporen . En primer lloc ens parla dels TransferMOOCs, la oferta de Coursera entraria dins aquesta categoria. Es tracta de traslladar a una plataforma MOOC els cursos existents; estan conduits pel professor, el supòsit pedagògic és el de la transferència de continguts, molts imiten els cursos tradicionals amb l’ús de conferències, proves curtes, avaluacions. És la opció mes moderna dels cursos tradicionals. En segon lloc, els MadeMOOCs, Udacity es qui representa millor aquesta categoria. Més innovadors en l’ús del vídeo, defugint els “talking heads”. En tercer lloc, els SynchMOOCs, cursos amb data d’inici i d’avaluació fixes. En quart lloc, els AsynchMOOCs, cursos totalment oberts, sense dates fixes d’inici o avaluació. En cinquè lloc, els AdaptativeMOOCs.

Há, a meu ver, um tema comum a perpassar os três. E esse tema me faz lembrar de Ivan Illich e Sociedade Sem Escolas (1971 – a tradução literal do título do livro de Ivan Illich seria Desescolarização da Sociedade)… E me sugere algo do tipo: “The school is dead! Long live learning”. (O artigo é longo. O primeiro dos três artigos é um instigante texto de Rosa María Torres, educadora equatoriana, diretora do Instituto Fronesis. O texto discute sutis diferenças de ênfase entre dois movimentos iniciados pela UNESCO nos últimos anos, Educação para Todos e Aprendizagem ao Longo da Vida. Educação para Todos foi (na verdade, ainda é) um movimento iniciado pela UNESCO em 1990, na Conferência Mundial da Educação de Jomtien, na Tailândia. Entre essas metas estavam: Em primeiro lugar, fala-se agora em aprendizagem, não em educação. Concluindo…

5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students My first year teaching a literacy coach came to observe my classroom. After the students left, she commented on how I asked the whole class a question, would wait just a few seconds, and then answer it myself. "It's cute," she added. So that day, I learned about wait/think time. Many would agree that for inquiry to be alive and well in a classroom that, amongst other things, the teacher needs to be expert at asking strategic questions, and not only asking well-designed ones, but ones that will also lead students to questions of their own. Keeping It Simple I also learned over the years that asking straightforward, simply-worded questions can be just as effective as those intricate ones. #1. This question interrupts us from telling too much. #2. After students share what they think, this follow-up question pushes them to provide reasoning for their thinking. #3. #4. This question can inspire students to extend their thinking and share further evidence for their ideas. #5.
